Wonder what Dietrich Mateschitz makes of this, apparently he has a decent relationship with Mark. Wonder if he likes a team member basically pulling his driver apart in a German publication.

Didn't think Webber would be at RBR in 2014 but when I read this on Autosport I thought it was pretty crass. Webber is liked and respected in the paddock and by a lot of fans.

Incredible! The new season hasn't even started and this guy's trying to knock the stuffing out of Mark! Talk about de-motivating! Ok some people need a bit of rubbing-up to get them fired into action, but you can't tell me Webber needs any pushing or prodding. First it's the "He's No2 driver" now this...! Whats he going to say about mark next week? If I was Webber, I'd walk - contract or no.

Remembering the "Not bad for a Number 2 driver" weekend, perhaps Mark should print out the interview and read it before every race. I think he races better with a chip on his shoulder.

Marko (and Horner) seems to suffer from smugness, he may be right, Webber may secretly agree with him, he may also secretly forget about the title in 2013 and concentrate on beating Vettel

Marko is full of ****. Webber lost his championship when A) He crashed out at a new track (Korea) in rain. and B) Was never supported by Vettel in Abu Dhabi, who stole the title from him.

Marko just needs to shut up, and hopefully disappear. Not like Marko was any good himself when he raced.

Incredible and unbelievable comments from a high ranking F1 team member about a driver that will be driving one of their cars next year, I have been following the sports for many years but can't remember such comments form one team member about another team member while they still form part of the same team.
I am no fan of Mark Webber, but for me DR H Marko's comments are a total disgrace/disgusting.
